Hany, I sure hope somebody jumps in here and gives a little discourse on Vermouth. I know very little. My short and dirty answer, which my sound sarcastic but is, in fact, sincere, is to open up a bottle and try it. In the final analysis what it tastes like to you is what really matters. Even if you did not care for the taste in a glass, you could still use it in cooking.
My only experience with Vermouth, other than the three or four martinis that I have had in my entire life, was at a great little Italian restaurant in Playa Del Rey, California. The owner would always serve sweet vermouth--and there is a better than even chance that it was Cinzano--as a digestivo after any meal.
